Welcome to Brannock, MT
It's 1864. Thousands of hopeful people are swarming west, some looking for fortune and glory in the form of gold, others for fantastic opportunities in a whole new world. A manifest destiny is sought by all, but it comes with a deadly price. Death comes easily to those who are unprepared for the challenges that await, and even those who thought they were prepared.
Such is the world of Dr. Jekyll and his companions, Jane Utterson, Hastie Lanyon, his daughter Cecily, the Reverend Danvers Carew, and Millie Enfield. Having traveled long and far hoping to find success in a booming mining town, tragedy finds them first. And when a mysterious stranger shows up in town, more darkness is revealed.
Recommended for ages 16 and older due to mild profanity and brief nudity. A promenade performance, however, chairs are available (no reserved seating). Food and beverage packages available.
ETP's newest adaptation of a classic novella immerses audiences into a world of gold miners, cowboys, and the main street of an uncontrolled wild west. Explore Dr. Jekyll's laboratory, the Lanyon General Store, Millie's Saloon, and the assayer's office as you experience a story of deception, love, hope, tragedy, and catharsis a mere inches away from where you stand.
Production made possible by a grant from The Collins Foundation and generous donations from people like you! Thank you!
Experience the Difference!
Experience Theatre Project specializes in live, innovative storytelling on the westside of Portland. We strive to create stories that surround the audience, so that the show takes place all around you, not unlike a haunted house or a Disney experience.
Our experiences take place in unconventional spaces, such as a storefront, lodge, or winery.
Currently we produce one winter indoor immersive event, a free summer classic Shakespeare show at the (now) annual Westside Shakespeare Festival, and an immersive event in the fall. Check out our past events at our GALLERY page.
